Our Mission

The Houston Area Women’s Center works to end domestic and sexual violence and supports all in building safe and healthy lives through advocacy, counseling, education, shelter and support services.


Our services are free, confidential and available to everyone.

Our Vision

The Houston Area Women’s Center envisions the day when domestic and sexual violence are history, rather than a part of our daily reality.

Our Beliefs

The Houston Area Women’s Center embraces the feminist belief that all individuals should have equal access to political, legal, economic, and social rights. We strive to create a community, especially for women, that embraces diversity, recognizes oppression, promotes empowerment and supports the right of all individuals to self-determination.

Our Organizational Values


Our passion to end domestic and sexual violence inspires our commitment to serve our clients and engage the community in fulfilling our mission.


We believe that the freedom to make choices affects every aspect of life; therefore, through education and example, we support our clients as they make choices to build strong, independent lives.


We cultivate an environment that affirms and supports the value of all people, cultures and abilities.


We demonstrate our respect for our clients, co-workers and community partners by accepting their individual beliefs, personal choices and feelings.


We work together by maintaining open lines of communication and by holding each other accountable for achieving results.


We set and maintain high standards in order to provide clients with valuable, compassionate services; earn the community’s trust and confidence; and serve as leaders in our movement.
